In 2019, it was predicted that Alaska would hit a record number of 2.4 million tourists in 2020, who would spend a whopping $800 million. However, since the presence of the coronavirus at the beginning of the year, Alaska's tourism and transportation industries have been hit harder than ever - with a significant drop in visitors and 14,000 tourism jobs lost.

Join us to get the latest on tourism and travel to the 49th state, what changes are being implemented to make transportation safe throughout Alaska, and what the future of these industries will look like in a post COVID-19 world.
